Well, I'm back. Sorry about the lack of updates lately. I've been really slammed at work, which isn't a bad thing. Self-publishing ain't cheap and neither is gas, so I need the money right now.
In what little spare time I've had recently, I've been really tripling my efforts, working on the cartoons for this site, some pieces I'm doing for a benefit this summer (more on that in a second), and a book I've been working on for over a year now. In fact, I've been working on this book for so long, that readers will be able to see the evolution of my style as they thumb through the pages. A part of me thinks I should go back and redo those early stories, but I also feel that art is an ever evolving process and that nothing should ever end the way it begins. That and I'm also really lazy!
Anyway, I'll end the talking part of this post by promoting the first annual Aftercon event. It is an art show that will be taking place during the San Diego Comic-Con this summer, and yours truly has been invited to contribute some artwork! And since that probably didn't excite you, there will be pieces done by real artists, including Phil Yeh, Hermann Mejia, Matt Lorentz, Steve Breen and Ray Bradbury, plus many more! All proceeds benefit the Shel Dorf Artist Fund, named in honor of Comic-Con co-founder Shel Dorf, who sadly passed away earlier this year. The fund itself helps selected high school and college students who want to work in comics and animation. It should be a great event, and I'm really looking forward to it. At the moment, a website and blog are still being worked on to promote the event, so as soon as they become available, I'll post the links.
Well, it been great talking to all of you, but I got to get goin' here. And please, feel free to leave comments on my comics, especially if they're positive ones!
PARTY ON, DUDES!
*NOTE: This was the last of three pieces originally rejected by MAD Magazine. Now that they're going bi-monthly again, maybe I should give it another shot?
